I don't remember where I was when President John F. Kennedy was assassinated on November 22, 1963, fifty years ago today -- because I was two. However, my mom tells me she couldn't hear the news flash about this tragic event because I'd just clobbered a neighborhood kid in the head with a wooden horse and he was screaming so loudly. She didn't miss the news for long, though, and neither did newspapers across the country, including those in Denver. Look below to see a gallery of front pages from that fateful day, including the ones issued by the Denver Post and Rocky Mountain News.
